Celtic have had a bid of around the £3m mark for the midfielder accepted by Motherwell and have been holding talks with his representatives.

The report claims that Celtic have withdrawn from the race to sign him after they failed to agree personal terms with the midfielder.

They matched an offer of £3m plus £250,000 in add-ons from Celtic that Motherwell accepted last week.

Brett Favre's Instagram hacked with return to National Football League post
The post was quickly deleted, and Favre told TMZ Sports that his account was hacked. The legendary quarterback is now 49 years old and in October, he will be turning 50.

Reported Celtic target Turnbull, who came through the youth ranks at the North Lanarkshire side, was free to talk to other clubs in January with his contract due to expire in the summer but the Scotland Under-21 worldwide did a U-turn and penned a new deal until 2021.

The 19-year-old was thought to be joining Celtic, but the Glasgow giants reportedly pulled out after refusing to meet the player's wage demands, according to the Scottish Daily Record.

Celtic were understood to have offered Turnbull a contract worth in the region of £10,000 per week and released a statement on Friday, describing it as a "magnificent" offer.
